DIGETHIX 14: NFTs and the Future of Art with Timothée Mathon

Seth interviews Timothée Mathon. Timothée is a French freelance artist. He has experience working as a Concept Artist, Art Director and Illustrator for the AAA Videogame and Movie industry (Ubisoft, Quantic Dream, Netflix, and Net Ease Games). He designed a collection of Non-fungible Tokens (NFTs) and heavily advocates for the independence of artists in the industry.  Samples of his work can be found here: https://www.artstation.com/theartnest. You can find his NFT collection, Crypto Rocks Rescue, on Open Sea: https://opensea.io/collection/crypto-rocks-rescue/. You can also find his stream on Twitch: https://www.twitch.tv/theartnest.

 

The key questions for this episode are: what is radical about non-fungible tokens as a technology? How can NFT change the way that art and art ownership function? What new options might they give to artists?
